Who we are

our story

We are beyond grateful to serve the greater Denver area with a heightened level of care and professionalism in the health and fitness space. RIGAR Performance was founded on a shared vision of doing better for our Denver community. A vision of top notch facilities, programming and coaching. A level of care that combines technical coaching and science-based programming with authenticity, compassion, and togetherness. 

We wanted to create a place where people come to train hard and have fun – the ying and the yang. RIGAR Performance combines passion for training with connection. Our product is effective, sustainable, and enjoyable. We strive every day to be a sanctuary for growth as people search to better themselves through fitness.

At RIGAR Performance we coach on an individual basis, even in a group setting. We take the time to get to know each member of our community on an individual basis and tailor the group programming to each members’ needs. Our coaches have over a decade of experience and are well-known among the Denver community. We are known to provide exceptional coaching, bringing out the best in people. RIGAR Performance strives to be a second home and family to our members.
